JUNE 27, 2019 | INTERCONTINENTAL WASHINGTON D.C.- The WHARF
DevNation Federal is the premier developer event for government. Join us on Thursday, June 27th in Washington, DC as we bring the most respected industry experts and key maintainers of popular open source projects on stage to deliver a one day immersive conference for federal developers.
Open source, containers and orchestration are the order of the day. Kubernetes has taken the industry by storm and become the de-facto orchestration standard. Hear first hand from experts on topics like micro services, containers, machine learning, serverless and much more!
For decades the government has been responsible for specifying requirements that were then executed by third party vendors. You will learn what types of practices are being implemented across government to foster speed and stability around Government-Driven Development.
Take back control of building your apps, take control of your future, and be agile. Learn how at DevNation Federal.

Open source communities are the driving force behind innovation in today's technology defined world. From Google & Facebook, to the revolutions being undertaken in communities around Node.js, Kubernetes, and containerization - open source communities will continue to reshape our industry for the coming future.
This change is not limited to industry - the federal government has a long history of wielding open source technologies to fight their battles. From building and driving socioeconomic programs throughout the civilian world to the front lines with our men and women in the armed services, open source technology has taken a role.
DevNation Federal is an opportunity for you to hear how teams in the federal government are using open source technology today, as well as hear from visionaries leading similar technology efforts in the private sector. Hear their perspective on how the use of open source technologies has transformed their businesses.
For Developers, by Developers. Help us continue to build our community.
